Ch. # Chapter Title Word Count Reviews
1 Summer Begins

In the dark ages of history, the wizarding bretheren looked to their four greatest leaders to train the next generation of witches and wizards in the school called Hogwarts... In 1980, a child named Harry Potter was born. Unknown to those who spoke of the baby boy in whispers and raised toasts to his triumph, something far greater than the banishment of a Dark Lord had occured that fateful night. A destiny had been sealed. A forgotten bloodline had emerged from the darkness to flourish in the veins of a young hero who would someday fight for the greater good of wizardkind once more...

12 The Return of Professor R.J. Lupin

The new chapter... finally! After his terrifying collapse the night before, Harry is perfectly well again... what is going on? Why has he recovered so quickly after a Legilimency attack from Voldemort? What's wrong with Snape, and what is the deal with Jade, the fourteen year-old member of the Order of the Phoenix? How on earth did that happen? There are far too many questions right now, but the one that bothers Harry most of all is a very personal one: Is he allowed to be happy anymore? Everyone wants him to be, but it doesn't feel right for him to be happy after Sirius died.

11,125 26
13 A Brewing Problem

Outside his office, Snape sensed a sudden explosion of happy emotions, heard someone shout, "Yes!" and the sound of a person jumping and punching the air. Then there was a pause, when Potter would be looking back at the door to Snape's office, embarrassed and knowing that Snape had heard him, and then quick footsteps running out of the dungeons, back to the red and gold safety of Gryffindor Tower. Snape groaned and put his head in his hands again. Now he would have to face Potter in class three times a week. Just when he had gotten rid of that annoying brat, too.

14 Trouble and Change

Life isn't easy- that's a fact Harry accepted long ago. But when his already stressful week is complicated even further by a pair of warring fifth-years, one of whom is a close friend and the other his intimidating mentor, Harry's life becomes infernally confused, and the result is something he doesn't like or understand at all.

15 Forewarning

Perhaps peace comes at a high price- in trying to settle a dispute between two people, Harry hurts some of his friendships. Some people are quick to forgive him, some are not, and some people can't be approached. The same anger that made these problems now blocks Harry from the solution, and he has no clue as to what it is. Maybe he should have looked at the clues and seen what defies all logic...

16 Losing Control

Hermione and Tristran get into a discussion after Harry's second Daily Prophet article comes out, leaving Ron feeling left out. Harry changes Ron's hands into flippers, and then he himself changes that night. This leads to Harry finding out that he's been a disaster waiting to happen for over a month.

9,533 25
17 Attack on Hogsmeade

Harry's magic appears to be stronger than Dumbledore expected, because the dragon is able to break free of the suppression charm at the worst times, and it seems that there is something rather alarming about Cho Chang. Something happens to Harry that he can't seem to remember, and an idyllic day with a friend in Hogsmeade turns into a nightmare.

6,893 26
18 The First Strike

The attack on Hogsmeade brings out the best in some people, and the beast in others. A surprising new ally shows. All Slytherins aren't evil... or maybe not.

10,050 41
19 Hallowe'en

20 Ravenclaw vs. Gryffindor

Extra training and Quidditch practices take up a great deal of Harry's time, but he doesn't let this get in the way of restarting the DA. The first Quidditch game of the year turns nasty, and Harry finds that he hasn't been paying as much attention to the important things as he thought: after all, when his life is ruled by a prophecy, oughtn't he listen to the ones who know the future the best?

9,298 33
21 Wings and Other Things

For Harry, homework and his friends are the least of his worries... he has to deal with a headstrong and aggressive Inner Animal, a startling surprise about one of his teachers, checking up on the DA groups, starting his Animagus training, and his homework to boot.

22 Mistletoe and Golden Stones

Coniunctis viribus Domini invenio Successori et conduco Successori comminus intus finis finium conditae celsi et antiquus solum doctrina, antebellum. Such objects, while they are sentinent- able to think- do not possess great knowledge or logical skills, and thusly, the movements of the Crystal were neither finessed nor subtle.

6,405 25
23 The Lupine Lie

Harry gets better with girls, and the author realizes that she has gotten better at writing than she was when she started, as she looks back on the earlier chapters. Harry meets Tonks's parents, gains more insight into becoming an Animagus and Occlumens, and gets another piece in the puzzle that is named Remus Lupin.

7,350 24
24 And So It Begins

And so it all begins... Animagus lessons, the post-Christmas schoolwork rush, the building power the Crystal... and the war begins in earnest, striking far too close to Harry's heart for comfort.

7,331 16
25 Thestral, Dragon and Grim

A Thestral finds a body on the driveway of the castle- but who? While Madame Pomfrey struggles to get rid of the Dark magic, Ministry officials move in to tie up everything from Hogwarts to the Department of Mysteries in red tape. Who else has returned from the supposedly dead?

6,829 17
26 Growing Pangs, Part One

Growing pressure. Growing relief. Growing danger. Growing power. Growing secrets. Growing older. Growing healthy. Growing friendly. Growing worried. Is there anything that doesn't become bigger or worse?

27 Growing Pangs, Part Two

Growing pressure. Growing relief. Growing danger. Growing power. Growing secrets. Growing older. Growing healthy. Growing friendly. Growing worried. Is there anything that doesn't become bigger or worse?

28 Beyond the Veil

Do the beasts that live among people- faithful pets and strays alike- have plans of their own? Do they listen, do they plan? Are there ulterior motives in friendly companionship? Do animals sneak in at night, encroaching upon civilization, to spy and steal, or are they simply foraging to live? If so... how to tell the innocent from the guilty? Is every creature watching, or is it only a few? Which ones? How could anyone ever guess which animals are not what they seem?

10,209 27
29 What Is Lost

As Harry and Greg's article goes into print all across magical Britain, other factors are creating problems for the Ministry, too. All are unrelated- a threat by Voldemort, an intervention by Aguila, and a shift in power with the Crystal- and yet when combined with Harry's latest stumbling block, these problems create a truly confusing cocktail of reappearances, magic, and Prophecy. Only a certain centaur with the Sight and a link to the other side could have known it would happen...

6,338 23
30 Dissension in the Ranks

The Crystal is now in the hands of the Ravenclaw Heir, but it seems that person is using it to stir up trouble in the castle and grounds. The portraits are nervous and quick to pin the blame on Harry, but with Hermione deciding  to conduct illicit research into dangerous magics and Sirius's re-trial pending, a little magic gone awry appears to be the least of Harry's worries.
